Greek and Latin affixes and roots help students learn the meanings of words. Students are required to memorize roots and affixes to form new words. However, students can also determine the meanings of words that contain a Greek or Latin root or affix by thinking of another word with that same root or affix. In this quiz, students will determine the meanings of the words based on their Greek or Latin roots or affixes.
